RM Auction Expands Global Presence With New California Office  RM Auctions, the world's largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is delighted to announce the opening of a new office in Los Angeles (Culver City), California.

Located at the heart of Southern California's car scene, the new office is part of RM's continued global expansion strategy focused on increasing its presence in important markets. By providing greater accessibility to its expert team of specialists, the new office will enable RM to continue to provide an unparalleled level of service to the collector car market.

'Over the past several years, we have worked actively in serving and representing Californian collectors through the presentation of numerous successful private collection sales, along with our annual Monterey event. Our new west coast office will not only enable us to better service the needs of California's extensive and important collector car community, but also surrounding states as we further grow our international footprint,' says Rob Myers, Chairman & Founder, RM Auctions.

Leading RM's newly formed California team is Shelby Myers, who has been appointed Managing Director of the west coast division, joined by well-known Beverly Hills car specialist, Vinnie Mandzak.

Shelby Myers comes to California after playing an instrumental role in the establishment and growth of RM's European branch, including the record-breaking Ferrari: Leggenda e Passione sales, along with the company's distinguished London, Monaco and Villa d'Este auctions. A lifelong automotive enthusiast, he has a broad knowledge of the hobby that spans the spectrum of the collector car market from American classics to European sports cars and Brass Era motor cars. In his spare time, Shelby is an active participant in the hobby, regularly competing in various rallies around the world in addition to being a member of many clubs, including the Bentley Drivers Club, Bugatti Owners Club and the Petersen Checkered Flag 200 Club.

Vinnie Mandzak is no stranger to the California car scene, joining RM Auctions as a car specialist following more than 30 years' experience at Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills. Known locally as Vinnie 'the car man', he has worked closely with Hollywood and Beverly Hills' finest, as well as coordinated the renowned 'Classics for Charity' car show for 16 years. An active member of various hobby-related associations, including the Petersen Museum's Checkered Flag 200 Club, the Mercedes-Benz Club of North America, the Vintage Auto Racing Association and the American Motorcycle Association, he is also on the planning committee for both the prestigious Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance as well as the Greystone Concours d'Elegance. Like Myers, Mandzak also has a broad knowledge of the collector market, with a special affinity for classic sports and racing cars, specifically Ferraris and Corvettes, as well as vintage motorcycles.

'We're delighted to have the expertise of Vinnie Mandzak on the RM team,' says Shelby Myers. 'Well-known in car circles, his vast background in the automotive industry coupled with his professionalism, energy and business decorum makes him a wonderful asset to the team.'

Myers and Mandzak will both play an important role in RM's upcoming Monterey auction, returning August 17 – 18 to the Monterey Peninsula. In 2011, the RM sale once again claimed top honors during the famous Pebble Beach motoring week, generating more than $80 million in sales—the highest results ever achieved on the Monterey Peninsula. In addition to a record for the week, the sale also entered the history books as the highest dollar single-day collector car auction in history with over $60.5 million in sales generated during the company's Saturday sale session. The 2012 sale is set to continue the tradition, lifting the gavel on an elite, handpicked selection of approximately 120 blue-chip automobiles.
